This year I am following The Unread Shelf but mainly trying to read the oldest books on my TBR list.  Of course, the list I'm going by is just the order of which I added the books on my shelf and not necessary in the order I acquired them.  Still, I have to start somewhere and the new books coming in are getting added in the right order.  I'll eventually get caught up.  


The unread shelf recommends a book buying ban every other month starting with January and I did manage to accomplish that.  It was difficult when I was travelling to Vegas to avoid bookstores but I did it and only read books I already had.  


Here is my stack to books I chose to make a priority this year.  The picture turned sideways but I decided to leave it that way.  It makes it easier to read the spines.  So far I've read 2 of them.
